  • Millennials moving their support to Trump in 2016?

    Alright, I'm no longer watching Fox Business, of Fox News, but I noticed this in the headlines I watch, and it seems pretty fair in fact. So let's say. Fox Business still seems to be on Trump's side. At least by the standpoint of this video. This seems like it's worth watching. http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/4459835966001/millennials-moving-their-support-to-trump-in-2016/

    The Federalist ^ | August 3, 2015 | Philip Wegmann, staff writer and radio producer
    While it’s not good for man to live alone, it’s even worse for him to live at home with his parents. A recent Pew Research poll reveals that though employment is up, the number of millennials living on their own is down. This failure to launch reflects a widespread cultural regression. By returning home after graduation, this generation’s doing more than just perpetuating adolescence. We’re losing at life. There might be more room for activities at your parent’s house but there’s little room for personal growth. And if being determines consciousness, then you’ll bring your future down with you when...

    Today, Sen. Ted Cruz announced the addition of a new Millennial Director to his South Carolina campaign efforts. “I understand the crucial role Millennials will play in the 2016 presidential election,” Cruz said in a statement. In 2008, Millennials voted for Obama by a ratio of 2 to 1 – the largest margin within any group since 1972. President Obama’s popularity among young people decreased in 2012, however, he still won the under-30 age group by 24 points over Mitt Romney (60 percent to Romney’s 36 percent). Recognizing Millennials could prove important for the GOP candidates in the upcoming election....

    “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”-Dr. Seuss My generation doesn’t talk much about abortion. The topic is settled in many people’s minds and further discussion only creates an atmosphere of hostility.  Many women and men who have experienced an abortion never speak of it for fear of judgment or personal shame.  Nonetheless, it is a quiet source of regret and great emotional turmoil for many people.  The politicization of abortion positioned as a women’s individual right creates a forced silence, and has produced a generation that does not want to look at the broader truth and as...

    ATLANTA — Republican millennials – many of whom began paying taxes, amassing student debt and searching for jobs since the last presidential election – joined more seasoned party members to watch their party’s first primary debate. But it was hard to miss that the younger generation of debate-watchers was dwarfed by a largely gray-haired crowd. “It is a slightly older crowd, hopefully some more young people come for the weekend,” said Josh Hammer, 26, a law student and supporter of presidential candidate, Sen.

    Mark Levin’s new book will no doubt be a bestseller, just like his previous offerings. But his latest work should be required reading for every recent college or high school grad just starting to make his way in the world, as well as every American voter. Levin explains in elegant, but easy to understand terms just how Washington and the elites who infest the nation’s capital are stealing our future. Woven into his narrative are both his original analysis of the corruption of our modern state and thoughts on liberty and freedom from great statesmen like James Madison and Edmund...

    Even though there's about 3 million more Americans in the 18-34-age bracket today than there was in pre-recession 2007, there are fewer millennials living independently in 2015. About 42.2 million young adults ran their own households in 2015, down from 42.7 million in 2007. "This may have important consequences for the nation's housing market recovery, as the growing young adult population has not fueled demand for housing units and the furnishings, telecom and cable installations and other ancillary purchases that accompany newly formed households," the report notes.

    Is there a saboteur in Hillary’s camp? Given the serial missteps in her campaign (the limp announcement video and lassoing reporters spring to mind), one wonders. The latest blooper snuck into Mrs. Clinton’s economic policy speech – a mish-mash of platitudes geared to pleasing various core constituencies. She gave a nod to working mothers, small business owners, minimum-wage workers, unions and other voter blocks. But, she goofed big time when she skittered off-cliché and attacked “the so-called gig economy.” It was a glancing blow, to be sure, but damaging nonetheless. Here’s why: Hillary Clinton absolutely needs the millennial vote. And...

    Over the next week, the only opinion people will care about on marriage is the Supreme Court’s. But as more surveys show, the backdrop for that ruling is a country still very much divided on the issue — with one exception: Millennials. America’s 18 to 29-year-olds, raised in an age of LGBT saturation in schools, Hollywood, and social media, are the most enthusiastic about redefining an institution that half of their parents aren’t even a part of. Lately, though, what’s newsworthy isn’t the younger generation’s support for same-sex “marriage,” but their older siblings’ growing opposition to it. wedding photo In...

    America should be shaken to its very core by what happened in Charleston. The gruesome massacre of nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, a historically black church in Charleston, S.C., may amount to the worst racially motivated terror attack of our generation and a deeply violent reminder that racism and white supremacy continue to course through America’s veins. One cannot help but draw comparisons to the firebombing of a black church in Birmingham, Ala., almost 52 years ago.

We unceremoniously dumped the icons, architecture and rituals that had fed the church for hundreds of years. We were desperate to present a cool, socially acceptable, “relevant” package for modern culture. Today, something unexpected is happening. There is a small but distinct movement of young people abandoning the smoke machines, multi-purpose buildings and celebrity pastors of recent church models, and heading back towards traditional worship services, where sacraments...

    News about race in America these days is almost universally negative. Longstanding wealth, income and employment gaps between whites and people of color are increasing, and tensions between police and minority communities around the country are on the rise. But many claim there’s a glimmer of hope: The next generation of Americans, they say, is “post-racial”—more tolerant, and therefore more capable of easing these race-based inequities. Unfortunately, closer examination of the data suggests that millennials aren’t racially tolerant, they’re racially apathetic: They simply ignore structural racism rather than try to fix it.

    Republicans have long struggled to catch-up to Democrats on high-tech voter outreach as well as courting younger voters. Jeb Bush may have found a way to kill two birds with one stone. The former Florida governor has tapped the co-founder of Hipster.com as his chief technology officer, according to his LinkedIn profile. Ethan Czahor, a Santa Monica-based technologist, will run the preparations for Bush’s presidential run at his political action committee, Right to Rise. Last week Czahor developed the microsite jebspeech.com, which accompanied Bush’s address to the Detroit Economic Club domain registration records show. Hidden in the website code was...

    Students across the United States are getting a taste of progressivism. And it doesn’t seem to please their palates. The implementation of Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity lunch standards is encountering backlash from students and school administrators across the country. The program seems to have taught them a valuable lesson in the realities of progressivism -- that when American voters give up power to busy-body progressives, the result is more control over their lives and the loss of individual liberties. They responded to this newfound reality with boycotts, social media angst, and filled trash cans instead of filled bellies.According to the Government...
  • Resistance is futile when your children are standing between you and Terrorism

    Dreamboat jihadists and silly Millennials In an upside-down world resistance to rampant Islamic terrorism was penciled in as futile from the get-go. Resistance is literally futile when your sympathizers are already in-house before going out to commit your next act of terrorism. This is what rampaging terrorists already own in their arsenal: governments that look the other way; the freedom of movement courtesy of lax immigration law, freedom of speech that applies only to them, and now their very own built-in cheering section. This is what the modern-day terrorist can now count on: thousands of teen girls ‘crushing’ (having a...

    WATERTOWN, N.Y.— Elise Stefanik, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, has never held elected office, but her résumé looks more like that of a Beltway insider than a political newcomer. By the time she won her seat representing a swath of upstate New York in the November election, she had served as a domestic policy aide for former President George W. Bush , a policy director for former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty ’s 2012 presidential campaign and head of debate preparation for vice-presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan .

    Much has been made about the shaky financial footing of Millennials. And it’s true; young adults today have high rates of unemployment and student-loan debt, which can keep them in a holding pattern when it comes to starting their adult lives. But a recent study by the St. Louis Fed took a look at Millennials who had managed to take the first step in creating independent households—getting a job and finding their own place—in order to see how the financial health of young Americans today stacks up to that of previous generations. "Financial well-being early in life... has important implications...

    A Congressional report released Tuesday found that millennials are not feeling the impacts of the economic recovery. The Joint Economic Committee's report added to what's become a long list of economic data showing that millennials are delaying major life decisions such as buying a home and getting married. In 2003, nearly 40 percent of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 headed a household. In 2013, the rate declined to 37.2 percent. Meanwhile, the percentage of millennials living with their parents has increased from 11 percent before the recession to 14 percent,

    The National Review thinks kids today are softer than cotton candy. They drew this conclusion based on the students’ and their institutions of higher learning reactions to the double non-indictment of two grand juries hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away from their campuses. Requiring everything from grief therapists (University of California) to delayed final exams (Harvard, Occidental, Columbia), the kids just can’t seem to shake the trauma. And if that weren’t bad enough, now people are making fun of them as well. Another Harvard Law student, writing on behalf of all of those Ivy Leaguers troubled by the goings-on...

    Future attorneys have an obligation to face violence and sexual assault in a different way than most. Attorneys belong to a profession that requires many to look squarely at the world's horrors. They prosecute serial killers. They defend accused rapists and child molesters. A lawyer leading a class-action suit might pore over depositions describing harrowing deaths from cancer or children burned up in cars during crashes. Sometimes that will happen even as the attorney's father is dying of cancer, or her kids are the same age as the ones killed in the rear seats above the faulty fuel tanks. Even...

    Earlier this week, National Review’s Eliana Johnson reported on how Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) plans to approach the 2016 presidential campaign: “His strategists aren’t planning to make a big play for so-called independent voters in the general election if Cruz wins the Republican nomination,” writes Johnson. “According to several of the senator’s top advisers, Cruz sees a path to victory that relies instead on increasing conservative turnout; attracting votes from groups — including Jews, Hispanics, and Millennials — that have tended to favor Democrats; and, in the words of one Cruz strategist, ‘not getting killed with independents.’” The plan has...

A NOS FRERES D’ARMES AMERICAINS "We have shared our daily life with two US units for quite a while - they are the first and fourth companies of a prestigious infantry battalion whose name I will withhold for the sake of military secrecy. To the common man it is a unit just like any other. But we live with them and got to know them, and...
